I had been taking patent medicines for several years,
and had been to one of the best sanitariums in this country,
but was not healed, although I received some benefit, for
which I shall always feel grateful, for I know the physicians
did all they could for me. I sometimes thought
I had exhausted all remedies, but did not give up, for
I felt there must be something to heal me if I could
When in this state of mind Christian Science came to
my notice, and after reading several Journals, I purchased
a copy of Science and Health. I read for several
days at odd times. I commenced to improve, and in
about a week I was healed of most of my ills, among
which were dyspepsia and nervous debility.
Although I had heard about Christian Science before,
I had never heard that the reading of the Christian
Science textbook had ever effected the healing of anybody.
I commenced reading to find out what Christian Science
was, but was surprised to find myself improving, and was
soon assured that it was the theology of Science and
Health that healed me, just as it was the theology of
Jesus that healed the sick.
It has also proved to me that there can be no
Christian Science Church that does not heal the sick
and sinful, for healing follows as the natural result of the
teaching of Christian Science. The Bible has become
a new revelation to me, and I can read it much more
understandingly by the light received through the reading
of Science and Health. - A. F. M., Fairmont, Minn.
